Located in western Texas, Guadalupe Mountains National Park contains a portion of the world’s most extensive Permian Limestone Fossil reef. The park also features Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas (8,794 ft). The park is probably best known however, for beautiful McKittrick Canyon. Thousands of visitors come in late October and early November to view the spectacular foliage displays that contrasts starkly with the arid landscape of the Texas desert.
